Yes, I have referred at least 6 people and will continue to do so. All my referrals reported high-level success and trust for Dr. Ricotta's surgical skills. He has performed eight (8) angioplasty surgeries on me since August 9, 2018, recently on August 6, 2020. Saving me the loss of my legs. If I had gone to him sooner I would have saved myself the pain of two archaic surgeries, which required 107 staples on one leg and another 67 on the other respectively. Not only did these surgeries cause permanent nerve damage but also caused the loss of two major arteries,. And, through my experience with Dr. Ricotta, he has remained cordial, caring, and supportive. Because of his skill, he has an extremely busy practice and some times waiting times are affected. many times have cautioned patients in the waiting who get impatient with waiting to decide if they rather lose a leg or foot verses the restaurant early bird window. He's the best and thats what counts.

Dr. Ricotta performed a carotid Enderectomy on me. He did a fantastic job, and despite the longer wait time I endured yesterday, I would still recommend him as the best vascular surgeon for the job.

Excellent!! I can't say enough about Dr. Ricatta and his entire staff. They are all phenomenal. I was treated with incredible care and courtesy by every person in his off. The nurses are the best. And Dr. Ricatta is at the top of my list with his demeanor and his explanations of everything that was going on while in the hospital and his office. If you ever need a vascular doctor in the Delray Beach area, he is #1.

I was looking forward to meeting Dr. Ricotta as I was referred to him by a Dr. I trust. I had the worse experience and I would tell anyone to run, not walk, away from his practice. After being charged for expensive tests and appointments the office staff never contacted my insurance for pre-approval. I was told they have no idea what the charge will be until after the procedure is done and there is no way to know what my insurance would cover. That is absolutely false. I’ve never run into a medical practice that has such poor procedures. Several times I’ve called and all I do I say get put on hold and the run around. I would not ever allow such a poorly run practice to touch me let alone do surgery! And I’ve never once seen the Dr. but have a huge bill!

Staff very nice, but it wasn't until the 3rd visit that we actually met with the doctor. Wait 1 hour 15 minutes for him to come to room. A procedure was set up, and the appointment was for 2:30pm. Three and a half hours later, the doctor came in to start the procedure. I'm sure he's good at what he does, but ridiculous wait times. Will be looking for a new doctor.

Absolutely horrible experience. I met with the PA and then came back the next day for a test. I waited 45 minutes AFTER the test in a room and no one bothered to come in. I finally got up to leave and the PA came and told she was going to talk to the Dr. about my results and would call me ASAP. 4 business days later- not a peep. I call to find out what treatment plan would be and was told the Dr. had not come up with one but would see me back in a month. Seriously?

We've all read the typical negative comments about all the doctors and their attitudes. Well I'm here to tell you Dr. Ricotta, as well as his whole staff, are the exact opposite of that. Everyone, including Dr. Ricotta, is communicative, proactive, and truly cares about their patients well being. I don't know if it's really possible to make a doctor visit pleasurable, but this is as close as you'll ever get. Thanks Doctor and staff.

You can call them a doctors office, but I call them FAMILY. Dr. Ricotta is genuinely a great person as well as a great doctor. Yes it might take a little time but you will appreciate it when he is taking his time with you. With such a great staff the time flies by because of all the positive attitudes. One of a kind office.

I was diagnosed with partial arterial blockage to my lower extremities. My internist sent me to Dr Ricotta with a sense of urgency. Dr Ricotta saw me a few days later and within a week had my first angioplasty. The staff showed the highest level of professionalism and caring. Daniel at the front desk was welcoming and Dr Ricotta's nurse, who assisted him with the procedure, was wonderful. A first rate practice.

Do not schedule with this Dr. he is more concerned with speeches and seminars and pushing appointments off on his PA. I was rescheduled 6 weeks after my fu visit and 5 days before my new appointment I rec a call I am being rescheduled another 2 weeks. I am in pain and suffering and the dr has other priorities than to keep appointments. I too have a job that I have to put time off for. Find another practice.

Horrible office. They messed up my appointment on two different dates. I had scheduled procedures but they couldn’t get the scheduling right. I never got a call or email from any office manager to apologize. I’ve taken my records to another physician

Dr. Ricotta and all his staff are exceptional, when I call and arrive I am normally greeted and welcomed by Daniel Torres. He and all the reception staff are friendly helpful and caring. It is incredibly refreshing to see a staff of people that actually appear to love what they do and take pride in doing it. The Nurses and Nurse practitioners are just as wonderful, kind and caring. Actually calming to me when having a procedure done. I highly recommend this office and Doctor and his office.
